Insurance Coverage ClaimsWhen it comes to insurance
coverage claims and disputes, we take a results-oriented approach
that is both expedient and cost-effective.
Policy holders and insurance companies often disagree as to what
situations an insurance policy covers. At the Joe Griffith Law Firm, LLC, our
South Carolina insurance coverage claims lawyers help clients deal
with their insurers to get valid claims paid under their policies. If
you have had a claim unfairly denied by your insurance company, you
need to contact an experienced insurance law attorney as soon as
Insurance disputes have become more common and more complicated over
the years, and the monetary stakes have increased as well. We handle
most types of insurance dispute cases, including those where the
coverage of the policy was misrepresented at the time of
application, as well as cases where a claim was denied despite
clearly being covered under the policy.
Insurance scams and insurance fraud cost policy holders millions of
dollars every year. Some insurance companies engage in
“cherry-picking,” which describes the practice of signing up as many
insureds as possible to a very generic policy and simply challenging
any claim that would be expensive to pay. After challenging the
claim in a “routine investigation,” the company will search for
inconsistencies or incorrect information submitted by the client and
use it to deny the validity of the claim in bad faith.
Insurance companies have a vested interest in not paying claims.
They employ teams of lawyers to avoid payouts on large claims. In
serious situations like fires, hurricanes, and substantial medical
bills, insurance companies have a financial incentive to avoid payment.
An experienced insurance law attorney can help you fight back
against an improper refusal to pay on a claim. We can conduct an analysis and interpretation of your policy and
prepare a proper claim under your policy. If your valid claim is
denied, we are not afraid to go to trial to litigate on your behalf.
